Though alike in their English heritage, the colonies of New England and the Chesapeake diverged from one another because they were colonized in different ways and for different purposes, giving rise to differing economies, lifestyles, and politics. New England was immensely democratic, possessed a market economy, and was largely centered around family and religion. Contrastly, the Chesapeake made its revenue in tobacco, consisted of mostly single young men, and had aristocratic governance at odds with its poor, farming population. Colonies produced several exports unique to their region. New England, with its vast forests, codfish hordes, and abundant wildlife, chiefly exported fish, ships, timber, fur, and metals.
But as The Europeans got more established on the continents and the Native American population plummeted from European diseases they found out that they were easy pray that could be easily supressed and dismantled from their homes. As the European claimed more land the Natives got angry. The Natives raided small settlements in attempts to scare off the Settlers but their attacks were pitiful compared to the retaliation. Large empires got dismantled by disease and technological superiority and the Natives were relocated westward. As USA Became independent they kept going claiming more land as they expanded westwards.
The land in the Mid-Atlantic colonies consisted of rolling hills with incredibly rich soil. New England, France, and other settlements made several attempts to colonize New England early in the 17th century. Those nations were often in contention for lands in the New World.The first New England colonies, which included Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, were all founded in the 17th century, beginning with the Pilgrims at Plymouth in 1620.But New Hampshire were founded as havens for various religious groups, including Puritans, Separatists, and Quakers. New Hampshire, on the other hand, was distinctive because it was formed primarily for economic reasons.
Right after the revolutionary war broke out, Thomas Paine published Common Sense to support independence. On the opposition, the loyalist, James Chalmers, published Plain Truth to argue the benefit of remaining as British colonies. Thomas Paine first used the example of Mr. Pelham saying “They may last my time” to illustrate the point that people should pursuit profit in a longer term. In his opinion, the relationship with England, though made the colonies thrive, will not work in the future. It is just like as the baby growing up, it needs to eat meat, instead of still drinking milk.
Zumarraga’s and other activists actions, over time, pushed for the removal of such practice except for northern parts of Mexico, after all, the lands were not going to work itself to produce the wealth the Spaniards required. The newly acquired lands needed to produce profits sans high cost of production, resulted in the most logical alternative: free labor, and who better than the native Indians and in the later later years, Africans, who were eventually imported by the masses, to carry out these functions? The Spaniards undoubtedly enjoyed the authority they were granted providing their share of profits be made to the crown. They felt a sense of entitlement and invisibility, as they were men, part of a society of conquerors, and in some ways regarded themselves as “owners of the known world”. In Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz poem ‘Arraignment of Men” points out the duplicity regarding men’s innate need to control and condemn others for the same fallacies they themselves exhibit, “You men are such foolish breed, appraising with a faulty rule, the first you charge with being cruel, the second easy you decree”
Due to the American Revolution, other Spanish and Portuguese colonies in the Americas started rebelling against their colonial masters for independence. This would mean that a new powerful nation would emerge that would endanger French and Spanish claims to territories. American Revolution meant a major loss of balance of power and prestige for the Great Britain. Britain was the world superpower at the time of the American Revolution. Over time, the US began catching
England wasn't the type of country to start a war and the trained military men felt uncomfortable using small weapons so Queen Elizabeth I immediately advanced the strength and the agility of the weapons. In the Elizabethan Era, there were many major wars. One war was called the Elizabethan War. The Elizabethan War was fought from 1585 to 1604 and it was between England and Spain. In 1588, the Spanish Armada was defeated.
Abbrigail Stevens Mrs. Martinez English IV, 4th Hour 4-21-16 Spanish Armada The defeat of the Spanish Armada caused Spain to become a second rate world power and forced Spain to change its goal for exploration. In the late 1500s King Philip decided he wanted to take over the world. He planned to take control of the English Channel. They were trying to transport a Spanish Army to Britain from the Netherland. In 1586 he decided to build the invincible Armada (Spanish Armada Defeated).
The colonists felt that the proclamation was a limit to their power and authority in the colonies. In protest, the colonists took to the westward trails, clogging pathways and moving out west. More significant than the immediate effects of the Proclamation of 1763 was what the Proclamation signified. It was the initial sign that England was starting to take an interest in the American colonies again, marking the end of salutary neglect. With this legislation, several decades of virtual independence in the colonies was over and the British began to assert their authority over their colonies.
The only problem is the British spent so much during the war that prices needed to rise. Knowing that the subjects of the crown in Europe would not be happy about high taxes after the war the British decided to tax the Colonists in America. The British ruled these taxes as fair because the war was fought over land in America instead of Britain, therefore the Americans should pay the highest amount of the taxes. This did not go well with the Americans. Already agitated by the British Crown and rule taxation was considered theft for a war they didn’t ask for.
The strong influence of Puritans, Quakers, and Catholics can be seen in the development of the British Colonies. However, their survival was based on agriculture and the growing seasons of the colonies they occupied. Therefore, the resources available to the colonists was the largest factor in the development of the colonies. The different geography of the colonies effected the development of the colonies and their societies. The northern, or New England, colonies had hard, rocky soil, fast flowing rivers, and large harbors, and forests.
Due to the immense production of iron and livestock, the early foundations of a democracy and important laws that were passed to increase the treatment of slaves, colonial New Jersey influenced history, and therefore, helped shaped modern day America. Because immense production of iron and livestock, colonial New Jersey influenced history, and therefore, helped shaped modern day America. Great Britain created a law, The Iron Act to help encourage people in the colony to manufacture more pig iron and iron bars and to be sent to England for trading, tax free, that help engage the trading via. New jersey manufactures tools, kettles, nails, plows, and nails, but it was a felony if they manufactured items for themselves. Farmers produced all different kinds of corn and bread, like all the middle colonies, they also had inhabitants who bred many different breeds of castles who are shipped to the merchants of New York and Philadelphia for trading for money.
The English’s view of the colonies in the New World at the time were just manufacturers of raw goods and materials. For example, rice and cotton were two staple crops for the southern colonies. While if you went further up north there was more distribution of goods like grain and fish. After some time though, the colonies in the New World had become a place for the English to gather and sell goods. With the expansion of the English colonies also came a larger market to sell to other countries overseas.
This also shifted the racial and ethnic makeup of the colonies. daily the demand was growing for labor. Immigrants were coming from all over by the 1800’s, Africa, England, and Scottland to name a few. Almost all the immigrants from Africa were enslaved upon arrival to the colonies. The second major reason for the increased growth was natural increase by reproduction.
